Looks great Tim. What did you use for the hydraulic lines? They fit perfectly.

How Do Gravman, the tubing was leftover form 1/12th scale race care models, used for fuel and radiator lines.

It is available from This place though:

Thanks Sylvain ~

Been a few weeks since any measurable progress was made:

Got the anchor rope guide made up, had a few chrome standoffs from another project that looked close enough to use as the rollers so on they went.

Got the mast rigging done, this boom is a simple set up ~

Getting there


Certainly some measurable progress, but the job of making at least a Few lobster creel baskets has to be taken on ~

Thanks to the generosity of Jerome Morris, I have some net material that may be useful...

Ohhh, the lobster cages are going to be a lot of work! I'm sure they will add a lot to an already amazing model. Did you tried it out on the water?

Hi Tim, Nice looking lobster boat. I wonder if I can turn the Jolly J that I won at a drawing into a lobster boat?

I don't see why not, you are a demonstrated 11 on a scale of 10 model builder, that would be a refreshing twist on a Jolly J !
